Over-65s are craving adventure on their next holiday – here's our guide to the 'grey outdoors'

AGE is just a number . . . and over-65s are craving adventure on their next holiday.

New research reveals a quarter fancy interrailing in Europe, while a third dream of a US road trip.

And six per cent are up for trekking the jungle in Peru, the poll from hotels.com found.

But with holidays still in the balance, I have been digging around for thrills a little closer to home.

HIGH IN THE SKY: Wowcher has some great deals for anyone looking for a spot of adventure.

There is a huge range of activities to choose from but I really rate the Helicopter Buzz flight for two, complete with chocolates and a glass of bubbly.
